The Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi III, has called on Nigerians to ignore people like Sunday Igboho, Nnamdi Kanu and their likes over the agitation for the disintegration of Nigeria.
Oba Adeyemi III, who spoke today, September 26 at the inauguration of 35 classrooms of the Royal Gold Model Group of Schools and foundation laying of a Mosque in Ibadan, Oyo State said that a lot of things had happened in the past that resulted in ethnicity and tribalism among Nigerians.
The traditional ruler called on Nigerians to find a way of reconciling with one another and forget about the past in order to move the country forward.
“I don’t think that separating the state is the way out, but we can restructure the country in such a way that we will have peace and tranquillity and live in harmony.
“There is need to unite in order to save Nigeria from disintegration,” the Alaafin said.
Oba Adeyemi III commended the Proprietor of the School, Alhaji Taofeek Akewugbagold, for promoting unity among Nigerians.
This was even as the proprietor of the school, Akewugbagold, said: “There should be no rancour or taking up arms against one another; every individual should be allowed to worship in his or her own ways.
“Both Prophet Isa (Jesus Christ) and Muhammed are prophets of Allah.”
The school proprietor said that he would build another Mosque in Lagos State to be named after Prophet Muhammed.
In his lecture, Almufty of Ilorin, Shelkh Sulaimon Onikijipa, called on Muslims to abide by the teachings of the Holy Quran and stop looking for miracle where it does not exist.
Dignitaries at the event included: the Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Saliu Adetunji represented by Mogaji Akere, Moshood Gbolagade; Chief Imam of Ibadanland, Shelkh AbdulGaniyu Agbotomokekere and Yeyelua Agbesinga Adinni, Alhaja Medinat Adedibu, among others.
